Nelson County, Virginia
Virginia Distillery Company  recently launched the voting process for its 2018 Charity Cask. The distillery team asked staff which local Nelson County charitable organizations they would most like to give back to, and now the top three (Nelson County Community Fund, Almost Home Humane Society/SPCA of Nelson County and Nelson County Pantry) are in the running to be the beneficiary of the net proceeds from the sale of the bottles that come from the cask, which will be released in August 2018.
Through the end of December, the community can go to the voting site and submit a vote, once per day. Results will be announced on January 3rd, 2018. In addition to voting, the community also has the option to make a donation to the selected charities here.
The 2018 Charity Cask will be the second batch of a single barrel of Coffee Cask Finished Virginia-Highland Whisky, following the 2017 dedication to Nelson County First Responder teams. The coffee cask is a partnership with Snowing in Space, a nitro coffee company in Charlottesville. The whisky Virginia Distillery Company is proud to support local organizations that benefit the community of Nelson County.
